DuPont Packaging Graphics (DuPont) has announced full commercialization of DuPont™ Cyrel® DigiFlow, a new digital workflow enhancement designed to expand the capabilities of digital Cyrel® and digital Cyrel® FAST to deliver superior print quality and productivity. The new technology will be featured at the upcoming drupa 2012 trade fair, to be held May 3 – 16 in Düsseldorf, Germany.
“Higher quality at higher speed is our focus, and the enhanced capabilities of the new Cyrel® DigiFlow system continue to provide our customers with a competitive advantage,” said Tracy Lunt, global technical manager, DuPont Packaging Graphics. “Cyrel® DigiFlow is a powerful tool to improve solid ink densities and print contrast, while maintaining the outstanding image quality typically associated with Cyrel®, all within the existing digital workflow.”
Cyrel® DigiFlow is a relatively simple and inexpensive modification to the existing line of DuPont exposure units; it adds a chamber that allows the creation of a controlled atmosphere during the main exposure allowing one-to-one reproduction of image elements on the plate. This one-to-one reproduction is critical to optimizing the effects of solid screening patterns. The Cyrel® DigiFlow exposure units were designed for use on an ‘as-needed’ basis, and can easily be switched off when the standard digital dot is the preferred result. Because of the low cost and the flexibility of Cyrel® DigiFlow, DuPont believes this is the simplest and most cost-effective solution for those flexographers desiring the ability to seamlessly switch between standard and hybrid dots. The Cyrel® DigiFlow offering is now available to order.
